Definitely worth the money
Karen was our tour guide and she was so knowledgeable about the history of St. Augustine - her anecdotal stories added to our enjoyment of the tour. We chose this tour over taking the “hop on hop off” trolley for a couple of reasons- one, I had read in reviews of the trolley that depending on where you sat, it could be very difficult to hear/understand what the guide was saying; two, the trolley is obviously super crowded (which we did observe as they passed us by). Karen was able to take us down streets that the trolley was unable to access. We were able ask her questions along the way. We were disappointed that many of the sites (Flagler College, churches) were still closed to visitors because of COVID; but that is obviously no reflection on this tour. If anything, it made the tour more worthwhile because we were able to get a general overview of all the “must see” sites of the city. We did walk down St. George street and went in several shops, but many of them carried the same type merchandise and it felt redundant after a while.

A Great Tour Guide Experience - perfect for seniors
This was a fantastic experience. Our tour guide Michael was a great narrator - he tells you stories the whole time and he used to be a high school history teacher. He made the experience amazing.

This was a favorite activity on our trip to St Augustine. Karen (our guide) was so knowledgeable and was able to bring history to life with her details and insight.
Highly recommend this smaller tour vs the three car trolley tour as we were able to go into smaller areas to see additional sites.

Fantastic Tour
May 2021 • Couples
Our tour guide, Karen, was excellent! We got a wonderful history lesson of St. Augustine. This intimate tour beats the big amusement park trams with people packed in like sardines.
I highly recommend this tour for anyone serious about getting to know beautiful St. Augustine.

Wonderful 1 hour tour-private
May 2021
Picked us up at specified location, right on time...Aaron was our guide. Aaron was very articulate in the past and present history of this old tourist city. The seats were comfortable and clean, and our group of ladies from The Villages thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. Aaron toured the old fort along the water, and took us past many historic homes and hotels. We asked him to drop us off, after the full hour at the Tini Martini Bar on the waterfront. Perfect day and again Aaron is studying to be a history professor, so he is on his game.

Greatest personalized tour of St. Augustine
Mar 2021
Had the most fantastic tour guide - KAREN! She picked us up at the Ponce De Leon site and took us on a magical and very educational tour of historical St. Augustine. We would have never been able to see so much and learn so much if we were on the usual "cattle car" tour with large groups of people. The price was very reasonable for her time and enlightenment. Karen takes her job seriously. She studies and learns about the sites that she presents so that she will give the most informative and information-correct tour. The electric vehicle is the only way to go because it is so quiet and can easily access the smallest areas and narrow streets that the "Red Train" tour can't reach. We were so lucky to have seen her driving through the Ponce De Leon site, otherwise I'm certain we would have missed the most enjoyable part of our trip to Florida. Book this company. Ask for Karen. You won't be disappointed.
